Firm Names

Postby Anonymous User » Sat Aug 04, 2012 1:35 pm

During interviews is it ok to call them by a shortened name? Like Fried Frank? Or do you have to refer to them as Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson.

serious question? if serious, why post anon?

yes, no one expects you to say "cadwalader, wickersham, and taft" every time you mention the firm name. your interviewer wouldn't do that. also, look at some of the website names for firms.

mckennalong.com
sutherland.com
milbank.com
kasowitz.com
skadden.com

they're giving you permission.
